adopted. governor romney's speech today is almost certain to raise this point. whether it will raise it in a way that captures public and managing agent and strikes them as sensible remains to be seen, but i would say that this survey and governor romney's speech, plus, the elements of the ground, they be entering what i would personally regard as an overdue public debate about what the united states ought to be doing regarding the syrian conflict. >> thank you so much. let me turn to hisham, and bill talked about the polarization of american public opinion on for some -- on foreign policy. not surprising where foreign policy has begun to play a significant role in both the campaigns, but what we see in the arab world is with the emergence of more democratic politics, polarization as well. around a number of issues that relate to the relationship, interaction between these arab states in transition and united states and the west more broadly. the poor results that americans seem to understand this is about islamists struggle power it could be explained by media reporting, but also a
the hashtag #cspan 2012. what did you think of this speech? caller: i think governor romney is trying to propagate a policy that he really does not have any experience in. the things that he says are good. they sound good. but i think the american people and the people of the world are just really not into being the police of the world, as governor romney is suggesting in this speech and lately since the debate. i think, again, it sounds good, but i do not think it is good for the country. host: our next call comes from battle creek, michigan, on our independent line. caller: i am ex-military, and i fought in desert storm. yeah, i think it's a lot of words. i have heard the same song and dance before. host: you got to turn the volume down on your tv. caller: ok, sorry. host: what specifically did you think was a lot of words? caller: about how his policies would be very strict on these other countries, and now he would be able -- it just seems like the same song and dance to me, and he does not have any experience dealing with foreign policy, so how can he say it is going to be this a
speech as an example of what mitt romney should do during the first debate for mitt romney tonight. we will also hear from bill kristol and bart gordon. >> i am darrell west. i would like to welcome you to today's events on campaign of leadership. we are what testing today's events, so we would like to welcome those of you better watching through the internet. we also have c-span with us today. we will be live tweeting the event. vileader. during the question and answer time, we will take questions from the live audience, as well as the virtual audience. the question about leadership has been a big part of the 2012 election. this offers wind -- insight into leadership style and approach to management. the question is, how does the presidential campaign shed light on the leadership qualities. what does the campaign experience, as we have seen it so far indicate their approach to management and governance? today we have assembled an outstanding panel of speakers to help analyze the questions. jon huntsman is a past presidential candidate. is a lot of authenticity to discuss the leadershi
care about that. i found it quite shocking that governor romney in a speech took a set of positions about the middle east that will box him in in a way the candidates don't do that. it was a rather tight commitment that mitt romney made. i was troubled by that. i don't think it matters. you want to create a structure where elected officials are not wholly dependent or not largely dependent on a given donor. you want someone to be in a situation where the donor comes back and that really want a certain policy and a certain candidate can say get out of my office. that money is fundamentally important your campaign and then you have a problem. >> you can say this is complicated. under our system of government, the tie to go to congress. the of the one selected by the people and came up with what they thought was a law that would prevent corruption. five justices said no, we have a better way to do that. hen you car in the area of something that is as murky as this, the members of the legislature or the members of the court will have a better sense of what the dangers are of corruption
found that when romney would offer something specific, except for a few points that barack obama had repeatedly used in speeches about where he was saving money or will the health benefits were coming from, he would not back up his statements with hard information. i found that in the speech he was making today. >> a tweet from marji. donald on our independent line. is that clarksville, tennessee? maryland? >> virginia. ok, first of all let me go back to what the man said a few minutes ago. common sense would tell you that if you are spending money where it is not needed, then that money could be used to spend on other programs, and the money that you are not spending on those programs, you could save that money and that would keep you from the deficit going up and up and up. that is, and math. unfortunately -- that is common math. unfortunately, that is the problem with many mitt romney supporters. they do not understand common math. mitt romney told america lies last night, and the sad thing about it is that so many poor and middle-class americans will believe them all because he l

of his televised speech after the incidents where he used that history to his favor. i think he did a good job of diffusing the attacks of romney. it is kind of dangers in a political debate to go on the attack too much. particularly in a presidential debate, where the incumbent kind of has the high ground and the challenger is the person who really has to bring that fight to them. i think it is a difficult situation. >> it was about a week and a half after the financial meltdown in wall street in which stocks plummeted because of what happened because of the leading banks. the first debate is taking place on september 28. we want to show the moderator of the debate on the campus of university of denver this year. he is questioning about what happened on wall street and how he would react. >> let me begin with something that was said in the 1952 presidential campaign. "we must achieved both security and solvency. the foundation of military strength is economic strength." with that in mind, the first lead question. gentleman, at this very moment tonight, and where do you stand on a f
more from its romney during his campaign even. plano, texas, democrat line. good morning. caller: sir, i want to say that this is fantastic. the president's speech was spot- on. he cannot represent -- he did not represent the 47%. he represented 100% of america. that is what we live in. and if we need to understand where this man is coming from, this man is moving our country forward. 110%. i voted for him last time. i will vote for him again. he is outstanding. thank you. host: louisiana, antonio. go ahead with your comments. caller: thank you for allowing me here. the president is doing the best he can. look at what bush left him with. come on now, you know? romney, lies, lies, and lies. host: did you watch some of the debate the other night? caller: yes, i have been watching everything. i am from another country. but barack obama has been like a dream come true, a black man. [indiscernible] is not a white president. he is not a black president. he is the united states president. he is a very good man with a lot of dignity and a lot of morals. host: the question this morning -- does
